Close but No Cigar

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Inland North
 

You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

I got the same as you - couldn't be further off! But I think I probably say different words outloud differently than I say them in my head. I ALWAYS get asked if I'm from California! I've got the Valley Girl thing going!

I got "from the West"
I wonder if there is a Canadian version of this.

I am thinking I lost some of my NY accent living in FL for the past 20 years but I don't know how that mixture would get me living in IL.

Why? What's wrong with IL? Seriously, though, it does suck at life.
